SOLD OUT! BAM IB&IM SIG Event: Theorising from Qualitative Case Study Research

  This event is currently full.







The aim of this workshop is to unpack the theorising potential of Qualitative Case Study Research. Emphasis will be placed on conducting Qualitative Case study Research under different philosophical orientations and its implications for theorising. In particular, the workshop with address the following questions:


  • What is Qualitative Case Study Research?
  • How do our paradigmatic assumptions shape Qualitative Case Study Research? 
  • How do we theorise from Qualitative Case Study Research? 

We will critically reflect on these questions by bringing in International Business, Philosophy of Science and Methodological literatures. We will discuss the limitations of inductive theory-building, and explore the utilisation of alternative approaches to theorising that can enhance the Case Study’s explanatory power and potential for contextualisation.
